World's Oldest Chess Player Dr Aron Schvartzman

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2012

Hi everyone,

We found this nice chess video from Argentina. This chess video is about the world's oldest chess (103 years) Dr. Aron Schwartzman. He was born in La Pampa (Buenos Aires Province) on 12.02.1908 and played a few chess games with his friend and biographer (MF Daniel M. Alpern) on 12.27.2011. (Filming and Editing: Christian C. De Luca)

    Excellent, Alexandra!
    I want to add that Dr. Schvartzman is older even than the GM Miguel Najdorf (Born April 15, 1910). Thank you for this wonderful gem of chess history.
